Poderi Crisci Pinot Grigio 2019

Poderi Crisci Pinot Grigio 2019

  • Pinot Grigio
  • New Zealand, 750ml

Flinty and driven on the nose, with hints of apple and pear offers a hint a lifted acidity and bone dry palate characteristics. The palate remains firm and delivered, combining subtle apple, pear, quince and marzipan notes, that transform across the palate and lead to a dry citrus peel and lime finish that lasts seemingly forever. Great weight and big mouth feel for a Pinot Grigio.

Poderi Crisci Pinot Grigio is a stunningly refreshing wine in a distinct Mediterranean style. It owes this freshness to its incredible dryness and its full flavour profile to a very low crop yield resulting in a wine with great richness and finesse.

Immersed in the art of food and wine for four generations, the Poderi Crisci winery is an invitation to appreciate the finer things in life, a destination with layers of experience. A family-owned vineyard with flair for all things Italian and a passion for traditional winemaking, this slice of Tuscany in the infamous Waiheke Island wine region will transport you to a simpler time just by tasting their wine!

Napoli-raised Antonio Crisci arrived in New Zealand in the early 90’s, quickly making a name for himself in the Auckland hospitality scene while setting his sights on a winery where tradition would meet innovation and give people a taste for distinctly Italian wine blends. Planting the very first merlot vines in early 2000, the family have stayed true to old world styled wine and grape varieties, while providing the ultimate winery experience for locals and tourists alike.

Time-honoured traditions and commitment to flavour are just a few reasons why “things just taste better at Poderi Crisci”.

Poderi Crisci's restaurant has received the recognition of being a Metro Top 50 restaurant as well as being listed in the Cuisine Good Food Guide containing the best 70 restaurants in New Zealand. It is also a stunning venue for weddings, private events for up to 100 guests. Just arriving at Poderi Crisci you may well think that you have been transported to Tuscany.
